why? because if the file open mode is set to a certain option, nothing else
will be able to access the file... demo or not, it is always proper to close
what you open... even cans of worms ;)

i don't know and i don't care... it is your buggy code that doesn't close the
file after it is finished with it ;) O:)

the attribution line is correct... you did write it to "All" since news has no
To: field, it has to be addressed to "All" ;)  the method i use to read many
newsgroups DOES have a To: field in all messages so that field is automatically
filled in with "All" when public postings are replied to...

i would focus your energies on learning more about the things you comment on
before sticking your foot in places it doesn't belong ;) O:)

 J> I did not write this text: "Now your demo cannot close the file, and

no it doesn't claim that... there are two quote indicators ('>') on those lines
indicating that you quoted them from someone else... that your tool doesn't
place that persons initials on their quotes when you quote them is something
else... kinda like ancient BBS message editors :)


that doesn't help me because it only exists on your side of the gateway...

 J> Time to set up your newsreader properly? Just wondering!

i'm not using a newsreader and what i'm using is set up properly ;)
